G-Men hire ex-Panthers OC Mike Shula.

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/22419862/new-york-giants-hire-mike-shula-new-offensive-coordinator

I think this can be a good hire. Shula got the most out of a (bleep) QB like Newton. An established QB with a returning star WR ought to be easy. The only thing though is that Giants need desperate help at OL. Their best two OL are Weston Richburg and Justin Pugh, and both are FA's.

Well Frank had his PC today so yes he's the coach.

I think he's a better choice than McDaniels but to see the locals do a 180 on the McDaniels hire is just laughable and eyeroll inducing to me.

Ehhhhh....I'll wait for Week 1. Let's not forget Belichick had this: https://sports.cbsimg.net/images/blogs/bill-belichick-jets-presser-10132014.jpg

I would still expect Shurmur to be running the offensive show there. And yes, you're right, the Giants' O line needs a serious overhaul.

Likely, but the two together ought to be a significant improvement.

At 39 though?

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/02/17/until-he-re-signs-brees-is-the-top-free-agent-quarterback/

Quote:
Until he re-signs, Brees is the top free-agent quarterback

Most regard Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins as the best available free-agent quarterback. And that probably will be the case, when March 14 rolls around. For now, however, theres an even better quarterback set to hit the open market.

Its Drew Brees. Signed to a six-year, $60 million deal by the Saints 12 years ago as an unrestricted free agent despite having more than 20 studs in his shoulder, Brees is now healthy. Hes also 39. But he has shown no signs of slippage in his play, and he could instantly make a bad team good (like the Browns), an average team very good (like the Jets or Broncos), a good team great (like the Cardinals), and a great team a Super Bowl champion (like the Vikings).


MDS pointed out that the Cleveland cap space could support an obscene offer, but Brees likely would regard the Browns as a rebuild that will take more years than he has left. If hes going to leave a Saints team that already has all the signs of being a championship contender in 2018, hed likely do it only for another championship contender.

Anyway, those are just some words I typed to tee up a video that presents our top five free-agent quarterbacks.

He'll stay in NO its much ado about nothing.

At this point who would want him beyond a year or two but NO?

I know the QB pool is desperate but still.

Yeah and when he's 45 he will break all sorts of records.

I doubt it.

This past season the offense didn't live and die by him I'll say that much.

Brees is not leaving the Saints, and the Saints are not letting him get away. They will find common ground.

The real intrigue is where Cousins ends up.
